closeup22

Triumph recently announced the launch of an all-new Street Triple range with 3 new models to suit every rider and style – the all-new Street Triple S, Street Triple R and Street Triple RS.  Each with a unique level of power, performance, technology and suspension. Each with their own distinctive attitude, from the addictive everyday fun of the Street Triple S to the full-on track weapon Street Triple RS which we’re going to focus on here.

Range-topping Street Triple RS – more power, performance and torque

The all-new 765cc engine is derived from the celebrated Triumph Daytona. The Street Triple RS produces 123PS peak power at 11,700 rpm – that’s a 16% increase on the previous generation Street Triple. It also features a lighter, freer flowing exhaust, revised air box, gearbox and new slip and assist clutch.

The Street Triple RS is simply the most explosive and adrenaline charged Street Triple ever, built to be at home on the track, and a weapon on the road.  Developed from the celebrated race bred ‘Daytona’ engine, the new 765cc Street Triple engine delivers a major step up in power and torque. With more than 80 new parts including new crank, pistons and Nikasil plated aluminium barrels and an increased bore and stroke. The result is a significant advance in performance, particularly low-down and in the mid-range.

The ‘RS’ tune delivers the highest level of performance ever for a Street Triple, with a power increase of up to 16% over the previous model, delivering 123PS @ 11,700rpm and a peak torque increase of 13%, providing 77Nm @ 10,800rpm.

There are riding modes on all models to help the rider better harness the increased power and torque in every riding condition. A richer sound track, from a lighter, free flowing exhaust and revised airbox delivers an intoxicating and more distinctive induction howl.

Stronger than ever acceleration and slicker gear changes are achieved through a combination of revised gearbox geometry and shorter 1st and 2nd gear ratios. In addition, on the R and RS models, a new slip and assist clutch set up delivers lighter clutch action and reduced lever effort for more control and riding comfort.

There are three different screen display styles to choose from, pre-set to the riding modes and changeable easily on the move. To ensure that the screen is readable in all weather and light conditions, each of the three styles can be selected with ‘High’ or ‘Low’ contrast.
